  • Earthquake Hazards
    • 1. Ground shaking
      • Love waves cause the ground to shake from side
        • Rayleigh waves causes the ground to move up and down
          • Primary Effects
    • 1. Liquefaction
      • When seismic waves shake saturated sediment
      • 2. Landslide + Rockfall
        • 3. Tsunami
          • Formed when rapid movement of ocean floor displaces a column of water
            • A  series of waves travel outward at little heights
              • As the wave approaches land, its energy is compressed into a smaller space, forcing it to gain weight
      • Secondary Effects
    • Factors increasing EQ power.
